My secret is go to bed early and get up around 4:00 or 5:00 AM and do some exercise either at home or at the gym at least 3-4 days a week. Save TV watching for the weekends. You won't have to worry about it when you get home and you'll feel better throughout the day too
I discovered this secret recently while setting up for strength training. I use 2 8-lb dumbbells and 2 5-lb dumbbells -- just about the amt of weight I've lost so far.
I just wanted to give everyone some extra motivation. I started 2 weeks ago (6-6) and I lost 11 pounds. Now you may say that is not that much but that is 11 boxes of butter or 44 sticks of butter!! How NASTY!!
I have learned to prepare for the next day before I go to bed. I pack my lunch and healthy snacks so I don't have to mess with it in the morning. I have noticed if I have a healthy lunch packed, I won't go out to a fast food restaurant for lunch.
Persistence is key. No matter how bad things look, or how bad you feel, keep trying and putting forth the effort. You'll never regret trying to get things done, or actually getting them done. You would, however, regret not doing the best that you could to finish things.
